Three Norwegian directors will visit Stockfish, all of whom have received awards and praise at film festivals from Cannes to Berlin via Sundance. Those are Bent Hamer, one of Norway‘s most famous directors who presents Norway‘s Oscar submission, 1001 Grams, screenwriter Eskil Vogt who has received raving reviews for his directorial debut Blind, and finally Unni Straume with the personal documentary REMAKE.me which covers the life of a filmmaker and how she finds new and unexpected stories on the borders between fact and fiction.
Hamer and Vogt will be present at the opening of Stockfish next Thursday and their films will be shown on February 20th, 21st and 24th. Unni will come during the latter part of the festival.
